Stride and Stretch

Hiking + Yoga + More

"Nature is Calling and we must go."

Stride and Stretch was founded in 2014 to inspire people to get outdoors, connect with nature and practice yoga.  Our events are a form of holistic multitasking, that allows you to savour nature as you deepen your life-force or vitality known as “Prana” from the earth, trees, and the sun. Nature does most of the work, but with a little help from our instructors, Stride and Stretch has become a phenomenon in the Guelph, Ontario area enabling people to connect with a community of like-minded people. Since 2015, Stride and Stretch has hosted more than 500 YogaHikes and events across the province. 

Stride and Stretch continues to grow in popularity and welcomes outdoor enthusiasts of all levels to enjoy a heightened yoga experience while surrounded by some of the world’s most beautiful natural scenery. 

The unique and unforgettable experiences are perfect for all skill and experience levels.

Rhonda McMahon, Founder

An outdoorswoman - avid hiker, cyclist, and paddler, Rhonda is a "Hike Ontario" Certified Wilderness Hike Leader, Reiki  practitioner and Certified Yoga Instructor (Restorative, Trauma, Kripula, YIN and Yoga for Runners). She understands the importance of a positive attitude and physical activity in assisting with personal health transformations. Rhonda’s transformation began after her cancer diagnosis in 2004. A former walker turned runner, until diagnosed with osteoarthritis in her feet,  Rhonda returned to her love of nature for healing and began inviting close friends to go on hikes with her and practice yoga.  In 2017, Rhonda hiked the entire Bruce Trail from Tobermory to Niagara (900km). From cold-tent camping in Killarney, to climbing Mount Washington in New Hampshire, or hiking in the Canadian Rockies, she is always on the lookout for an adventure. Rhonda looks forward to sharing her passion for the outdoors and yoga with you.  Namaste!


“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
